Turkey Shoot, the Ozploitation favorite from Australian treasure Brian Trenchard-Smith (BMX Bandits, Stunt Rock) will make its Blu-ray debut this September from Severin Films.
Featured prominently in Mark Hartleys essential Not Quite Hollywood doc (of which never-before-seen outtakes will be included on this disc), Turkey Shoot (aka Escape 2000 and Blood Camp Thatcher) is 1982 shocker where, in a totalitarian near future, defiant citizens are labeled deviants and sentenced to brutal behavior modification camps. But when new prisoners Anders (Steve Railsback of The Stunt Man and Helter Skelter) and Walters (Olivia Hussey of Romeo & Juliet and Black Christmas) are chosen as human prey for rich people to hunt, they will be thrust into a nightmare of depravity, dismemberment, cleaved skulls, exploding heads, lesbians with crossbows, the insane hungers of a deformed cannibal circus freak, and more.
